Unlike today's mass-produced, hot-drop forged blades i. By machine, this knife enjoys a fully hand-forged blade made from superior virgin steel. As such, it is quite superior to that made today by any but the most demanding custom cutlers. I estimate the age of the piece as being between WWI and WWII, as evidenced by its construction, which is magnificent in a way that only custom knives can be today. The handle is clad with thick scales of sambar stag, somewhat coke-bottle shaped, with solid brass bolsters.As such, it is FAR more comfortable in the hand and allows a comfort and control that eludes most knives. Especially telling is that it has a full and fatted tang for maximum balance, and a measure of fit and finish more akin to that of a hand-built Rolls Royce than a robotically assembled Lexus, if you know what I mean. The center of its gravity sits squarely in the center of your palm, as it should, giving the user maximum control. You will not soon forget the feel of such a knife, once held. A collector's piece though it may be, it would be an utter shame not to use it daily. It's blade is made of beautiful carbon steel, and will hold a razor's edge, with relatively easy honing. Also unusual about it is the relatively French profile of the blade--more truly triangular than most German chef knife blades. If you've never used a carbon steel knife before, you're in for a treat.
Experienced chefs know that only a true carbon steel blade can consistently attain the razor-sharp edge that makes cooking a true pleasure you must wipe the knife after every use to avoid stains and rusting, but will be richly rewarded with superior performance! Measures 14" with a RAZOR sharp 9.25" blade--the quintessential chef knife size that comes up HUGE for any job in your kitchen, large or small. It's ready to serve a useful lifetime of dicing, chopping, slicing and generally making fast work of whatever you put in its way or the centerpiece of most fine cutlery collections. An instant heirloom for user and collector alike.
